This Chapter discusses offences of dishonesty. These include theft; taking a conveyance without consent; robbery; blackmail; burglary; handling stolen goods and money-laundering; offences under the Fraud Act 2006; conspiracy to defraud; and dishonesty. Amongst these, the offences receiving the most detailed treatment are theft and fraud. Whilst the current definition of theft dates back to 1968, long before the time when it became possible to hold and transfer money and other items (such as photographs) electronically, the Fraud Act 2006 is much more recent. But, in seeking to modernize the law’s approach to new forms of property holding and transfer, is the definition of fraud now too wide?
